I took the exam today and passed with the score of 84.
I'm a college student in New Jersey.
I want to thank all of you who helped me out with the questions. Thank you so very much!! =) Without the help, I would probably have missed some of the questions with the simialr topics.
The only book I read was RHE and some other Java book(I forgot the name of it, but with red cover and a guy with grey hair on it=) I've read RHE book about two times and went back to both books for reference if I needed. During the past few weeks, particiapated on the forum alot and it really helped me not miss out some of the confusing questions brought up by other people. I think It was one of the most helpful thing to participate on the forum and try to help people with the best possible resources at hand.
My exam wasnt that bad except I had missed out some Threading q's and inner class scopes. Some questions on IO, Randome Aceess File, adding buttons to Frame, InputStreamReader,etc. A very general question on GridBag(no brainer, i was lucky=) static, interface, array declarations, switch(know if no break, fall thru!!), making an abstract class, java.lang.Math, etc
No writing code, all MCs , Two hours was more than enough so i recommend anyone to take time and make sure you get the ones you are comforatable with.
For me, I used the blank paper for various questions such as traking variables for loops, references and Layouts.
I really appreciate all your helps and hope to drop by occationally to participate in the forum.
Thank you and javaranch=)
